Join our "Keep Our Library Open" Anti-Gala Fundraiser

Your donation will ensure the continued services in 2019 of San Juan's only open to the general public lending library: San Juan Community Library.  The adults and children who count on our services come from many different backgrounds and from cities throughout Puerto Rico.  They depend on us for free access to books, computers, meeting and tutorial spaces, a program of classes, complimentary Wi-Fi and internet access, and a daily book fair with modest prices.  San Juan Community Library is also the only public library in Puerto Rico with a virtual branch (digitalsjcl.org).    
100% of your support will go to our library's 2019 operations.  No caterer to pay or other expenses to absorb your contribution.  For residents in Puerto Rico there is no need to hire a babysitter, to buy an outfit, or to look for parking.  Free up your time and keep our Library open in 2019!  

For our followers throughout the world, you are helping to support a unique institution that guarantees access to books, computers, and so much more in a safe and secure space that is open to everyone!

San Juan Community Library is a non-profit organization recognized by the PR Departments of Treasury and State.  Your support is also tax deductible for federal reporting purposes, as we are a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization.  

Thanks everybody for your support!
